1.0 A short introduction
This Internet Site has been made by me, Patrick Wagemakers. I was born in the Netherlands were I still live, and this means that English is not my native language. These pages show you
something of my hobbies. I will name some of my hobbies.
Right now I am no longer a student in Chemistry
Since this site is placed in the Neighbourhood Yosemite, I will not
talk or write about this hobby here. The only thing I do have
to say is the following:
Onze aardbol bestaat voor het grootste deel uit water.
Het water bestaat uit de componenten zuurstof en waterstof.
De lucht die we in-ademen bestaat voor 80 procent uit
stikstof, en de andere 20 procent uit zuurstof. Het
belangrijkste element op onze aarde is koolstof. Alle
levensvormen zijn daaruit opgebouwd.
Our earthbol mostly consist of water. The water is made
with the components aciddust and waterdust. The air we
breathe consists of 80 procent of chokedust and twenty
percent of aciddust. The most important element on our
earth is coaldust. All lifeforms are made of this.
Writing is something you could find here. At my scouting career
I took the job of writing the "kampkrant". This is some sort of
a log we keep during the whole week.
The Internet hobby made it possible for me to set up these
pages. If you like them, and you want to make pages wich
look like these, you could contact me, but, I am just one
person who looks at other pages wich I like, and the use
the html-tags for my own pages.
The computer section will not be very clear here, simply
because this is the Yosemite neighbourhood, and I won't talk
about computer stuff here. (The only thinh I'll say about that is that my new job has got something to do with computers, mainframes, networking, Internet, and so on. )
2.0 ScoutingScouting is a hobby
which fits here in Yosemite. And you better believe it.
Right now there are other pages at Yosemite wich discus
something about scouting. You can find some other scouting pages in my
Scouting URL's. This URL will also
show you a couple of URL's of dutch scouting pages. But not
all of them. I have tried to name all the Homepages with
english text. So the international reader can look at these
pages. Furthermore I have put in some other adresses. Their
purposes or goals are also named. The rest on this site
gives you different information. There is a page about my
scouting group. The name of my scouting group is the Robert Kennedy Group. The name was choosen in 1968 after the
assasination of Robert Kennedy. This also means that my group will celebrate its 30 year anniversary in july.
These pages are mainly a copy of the original dutch
version. The dutch version contains a lot more information
and stories. This site will only give you some global
information about my scouting group. I cannot give you
information about "Scouting Nederland", because this
is not an official page of Scouting Netherland. But
I will give you the adresses of sites with this
information. The official site of Scouting Nederland is
There is also an official scouting site of the Region
Limburg. The adress is:
2.1 MyselfScouting is for me more
than just putting info and pages about scouting on the
Internet. Because the pages about my group give info about
the group itself, I will put some information about my own
scouting experience.The biggest event I witnessed was the
18 th World Jamboree 1995 in the Flevo-Polder. I worked at
the survivaltrack. If you have been at the WJ95 and you did
the track, you could have seen me at the obstacle, The New
Amsterdam. This was the Big obstacle where you climbed and
walked over net's wich were shaped like the rooftops of
the old Amsterdam centre. It was named New Amsterdam (or
Amsterdam 2) because there had been only one Amsterdam at
the European Jamboree in 1994. They build an extra Amsterdam
for the WJ95. If you have been there, but you don't remember
the names, it was the Amsterdam on the left.
The rest of my scouting carreer is being a leader for boys
in the age of 10 to 14. They are called "Verkenners". or
"Scouts". I started as a scout when I was 11 years old. During
those years I went to three summercamps. When the time came
to move on a stage, I became a Rowan. During that time I
went to Luxembourg on a camp, and the next year we went to
the river the Semoise with a rubberboat. We started in
Belgium, and ended in France. After those two years, we
had to stop with the "Jongerentak", as we had named our
group. It was a mixture of rowans and pivo's. Instead of
being a rowan for four years, I was a rowan for only two
years. I became a leader at the age of seventeen. I was lucky
to meet a team wich could work very well. Right now I have had
five summercamps with this team. And my idea is to go for
other summercamps. Right now we are planning our new
summercamp. We have some ideas about the theme, and we
already know were we will make our camp. A lot of my free time
is used for scouting. Developing photo's, making new games,
setting out a small hike, making plans for a new camp. A
lot of things I do are related with scouting.
The tower is also related to my scouting group. We are planning
a weekend near the tower, and we have build the tower with our
scouting knowldge. I do not mean that we used knots to tie up
the tower, but we used ropesand knots to secure the tower, lift
poles, stabilize the tower, and outline the tower. We build the
tower whilewe were a team. The same team we are when we stand in
front of our scouts. Well, of course we were not the only
people who were building the tower, there were also other
people there, but I am proud to say that it wasclear that
we were a team.
